I get what you mean and it’s not incorrect, but a terminology issue. Because they are departing/arriving at the same aerodrome within 10 mins of each other they should receive a traffic statement. A traffic alert would be something given when aircraft will operate in unsafe proximity and would be more along the lines of “safety alert, traffic is” and most controllers would give a suggested resolution as well. For reference the traffic parameters are dep/arr within 10 mins for the same aerodrome, 15NM lateral and within 1000ft of each other vertically (2000ft where the pressure level information hasn’t been verified)
